So Naomi Campbell is making a big deal about an ad Cadbury ran in the UK. She claims it's racist.

Do you think it's racist?

I think it's another example of oversensitivity in society. In no way, by any accepted definition of racism, is this ad racist. It in no way demeans anyone based on race. I think she's basically being a stupid bitch by making a big deal about it.

There was a thread on this yesterday if memory serves but no, it is not racist.
She is just a pain in the arse.

Yes, it's a disgusting bigoted racist ad! These people should burn in hell for their terrible racist! What pigs.

That's a bit dodgy, aye. Maybe not racist but not exactly delicate either.

Isn't she kind of proving that she's a diva by making a big deal about nothing? She should have just taken the ad's advice and moved over, because it does appear that there is a new diva in town.

I think it's an example of oversensitivity in one egotistical woman. Unless black people everywhere are suddenly complaining (they aren't AFAIK) I don't see why society should be dragged into this.

I used to think black people were chocolate when I was a child.

So maybe it's just immature?
#8
I can kinda see where she's coming from, but I think it's an overreaction.

In the other thread about this I said something about describing people being racist and suing someone because they complimented my blue eyes.

How's it even dodgy? Naomi Campbell is a diva, can we not mention black people now with chocolate? It mentions nothing of race, absolutely nothing. If an ad for a chocolate titled Juicer says, "Move over Barry Bonds, there's a new juicer in town", is that racist? I don't understand that logic at all.

It's dodgy because if i was trying to make a chocolate advert with a racial agenda that's exactly how i would do it.

I'm not saying the person who made it is racist nor that every black person is going to be offended by it, it's just a little bit off, and you can see why someone would be annoyed by basically being told she can be replaced by chocolate when she happens to be a similar colour to it.

You also seem to be implying that if this was made by some horrible racist then there would be some logic behind it, because racists are usually such down to earth, sensible people.

I see nothing racist about this ad. She's just getting upset over nothing.

But color isn't mentioned or even implied, just inferred by her. She's being oversensitive.

Of course it isn't (because it's not actually racist like i said), I'm just talking about where she's coming from. It's not like there's a shortage of white models they could have mentioned in the advert and they should have expected someone to get pissed off. No one's really in the right here.

But she's the obvious choice, just like Barry Bonds would be as the Juicer, she hit her sister in the head with her cell phone, and freaks out about small things like this, she's a very obvious diva, I can't even name another model besides Naomi Campbell.

There's that Kate Moss bird, but I think they already used her in an advert for sherbet.

She's being supported by a black person PAC IIRC.

[quote="'-[NiL"]-']I used to think black people were chocolate when I was a child.
I thought I was the only one.

EDIT: I don't see how that is racist, unless we are still not allowed to tell black people to move over.

Of course it isn't racist, she just wanted the attention. And it worked, this is the first time I've ever heard of her (disregarding the other thread on this).

Quote by captaincrunk
Really? She's pretty famous.

I don't exactly pay attention to models. And now that I think about it, she's also the only model I've heard of. Unless playboy models count, in which case, I know of her and Sara Underwood (thanks to G4).

How unwise Cadbury...

I just recently read an article how most people find black women less attractive then women of other races.
